Firewitch dianthus is blooming and scenting the garden

Imagine a strong, clove-like fragrance.

That’s what I’m enjoying every time I step onto the deck thanks to my magenta ‘Firewitch’ dianthus. I’ve paired it with spineless prickly pear and a squid agave pup for fun color and form. Excuse me while I go take another sniff.

    Clove-like? Now if that really is the case it will remind me of the dentist when I was a child. That smell was always on the air. I need to go out and smell my dianthus to see if it has the same smell.

    One of my favorite garden fragrances! I can almost smell it through the computer. Our dianthus won’t be blooming for a while yet. Your combo is fun!
